The usual Sunday evening chat with the “Navigator” led to a plan to drive to Ammanford catch the bus (free with our bus passes) to Pontardulais and walk back over the hills.
Our little group of three was expanded by Paul.
|Looking down to frosty fields|
|Waymarker on Graig fawr|
From the bus stop in Potardulais we waked through the town and climbed steadily onto Graig Fawr, stopping halfway for a coffee break. The views showed the frosty land below while higher up we were in sunshine.
|The route up|
We continued to the top and then had lunch looking into Blaenffynhonnau.
|Lunch looking towards Pentwyn Mawr|
These lovely hills have not escaped the scourge of the windmills.
|Control your temper!|
They even have their own signs, not unfortunately pointing towards hills and paths.
|Not footpaths but signs to wind things|
As we descended towards the road at Penlle`r Castell we discovered the tarmac was an ice sheet and watched a car and a van precariously manoeuvring their way down, the car in reverse!
Our route back took in Bettws and across the Afon Aman into Ammanford.
